I had heard great things about the Clyde's Bethesda location, so I was expecting it in Columbia. The food was okay, but the service was not as good as I've experienced at every other restaurant that I've visited in the area.

The location was cool, weather was perfect. We had visited the restaurant for dinner during their happy hours, what we ordered was all mixed up and we had to get the check corrected twice. Had we been in hurry, it would have been terrible.
